How did Lady Fatima Al-Zahra (peace be upon her), the daughter of the Holy Prophet, die at such a young age? Why did she order her husband, Imam Ali, to bury her at night and in secret? Why, to this day, do we not know the exact location of her grave? Why does Sahih Al-Bukhari and Sahih Muslim report that she died angry at Abu Bakr? Why did she forbid Abu Bakr and Umar from praying over her body?We all know the famous Hadith of Allah's Messenger (peace be upon him and his family): "Whoever dies without recognising the Imam of their time, dies the death of Jahiliyya (ignorance)." So who was the Imam of Lady Fatima (peace be upon her)? We know that she definitely did recognise an Imam, or else she - God forbid - died the death of ignorance. But we know that it was not Abu Bakr, as she died angry with Abu Bakr. So who was her Imam? If it was Imam Ali (peace be upon him), then what does that say about Abu Bakr's self-proclaimed, political leadership?These are questions that our brothers and sisters who call themselves "Ahlus-Sunnah" must seek answers for.

THE SAHABA KNEW OF IMAM ALI'S SUCCESSION TO THE PROPHET!Those who oppose the Shia repeatedly argue that the belief in Imam Ali (peace be upon him) succeeding the Messenger of Allah (peace be upon him and his family) is a belief which was created later in history by a Jewish man, known as Abdullah bin Saba.Little do they read of their own most prominent books of Hadith - which they regard to be their most authentic collections of reports. For if they had delved into their very own Hadith books, they would know that this idea of Imam Ali's succession was something which was known amongst the people.
